ASP internships give rising college juniors, seniors and recent graduates an opportunity to gain valuable teaching skills by working with experienced teachers in their chosen subject. This pairing is done early enough to allow for communication and planning between the teacher and intern before the program begins.
Interns are very involved in teaching classes, leading discussions with the students, class planning, and evening homework help during study hours. They work closely with their teacher daily. In addition, interns lead the sports and extracurricular programs, help supervise the dormitories they live in, and assist in the library.
Applicants must be at least in their second year of college and should demonstrate a genuine interest in a community of learners, willingness to work hard, and a solid academic record. The director will interview candidates during the winter or spring preceding the summer session. The intern application deadline is January 10. The internship starts in mid-June and runs through graduation at the end of July. This includes a four-day orientation before the students arrive.
